In 1958 a very rare blend of Scotch Malt and Grain Whiskies was discovered in 10 oak casks in The Port of Leith, Edinburgh – in a warehouse owned by William Muir Bond 9 Ltd. (Estd. 1823). The blend was originally distilled in 1954 and the blend recipe as created by Marshall Taplow Ltd. (Estd. 1760) dates back to the 1800’s. In 1966 a small quantity of the blend which was now 12 Years Old was bottled for the enjoyment of the Directors of William Muir Bond 9 and a number of their friends. A total of six individuals were instrumental in forming what became known as Syndicate 58/6 – hence the name.
This hedonistic harmony of passion is reflected on the palate. Rich and intense flavours of Old English marmalade, glazed apple, creamy caramel and marzipan drift lovingly over the tongue. The aftertaste of figs, forest fruits, treacle and apricots completes this overture of pleasure.
